  • Nice Slot Canyon.
  • Great hike, relatively easy compared to many of the trails in the area. Only issue is it’s over 90% hiking through sand. While it’s flat walking through 6 miles of sand can be wearing, especially on your ankles, but the slot canyons are worth it for sure. Fantastic slot canyons and they change shape, color, etc after short distances. The slot canyon splits into an east and west section. The west section has a definite end - gets fairly dark and drops 20-30 degrees. You know you’ve reached it when there’s only inches left in the crack. The other main canyon is worth visiting as well but goes through to the other trail head but has sections where you could can easily climb up the canyon and explore.
